Welcome Ben Turner to our wonderful accountancy team. - Wednesday 29th Mar 2017

 

It’s not often we shout about our fantastic accountancy team based in our flagship office. So, we are excited to announce we have a new face on the team.

Our existing superstar accounts team Naomi Plaw (Accounts Manager) and Ben O’Brien (Payroll Manager) together make sure payroll for clients runs without a hitch and manage the incomings/outgoings to support our three branches.  As our business grows, so does our team!

Cue Ben Turner, our brand new Accounts Assistant.  Alongside working for One Step, we are supporting Ben as he studies for his AAT level 3 qualifications at Richard Huish College.

Believe us there is never a quiet day for this department, so we want to take this opportunity to say a massive thank you to the unsung heroes of the company.

Inspiring future generations - Tuesday 14th Mar 2017

 

Yesterday our commercial manager James joined other local business leaders at the Robert Blake Science College in Bridgwater, to prepare future generations for the working world ahead.

James led a workshop about interview tips, including going back to basics about first impressions and body language, before moving into the nitty gritty of showcasing your skill set during an interview.  

Fuelled by tea and cake, James came back to the office feeling really positive after spending time with the students, adding “it was a great morning, loads of energy and interaction from the students.”

One Step Recruitment invest a lot of time with local schools, it was why we set up The One Step Foundation. The ultimate reward for us is inspiring the workforce of tomorrow, but we were equally delighted when our work in the community won us our first The Somerset Business Award last October, in the ‘Skills for Growth’ category.

As its Apprenticeship Week; we are dedicating our Friday news to the cause. - Friday 10th Mar 2017

 

Over a morning coffee, I found out what it’s like to be an apprentice and how hiring an apprentice meets our business needs, with that warm fuzzy feeling knowing we are helping students get one step closer to their goals.

Talking to our Commercial Manager, James, he said; “We have been employing apprentices for almost a year now and it has been a real benefit for us at One Step Recruitment. It allows us to nurture candidates within the recruitment world with hands on experience in our offices.

We have seen first-hand how students have grown with their job and throughout the apprenticeship process. It’s a real delight to watch those who started off quite shy, to now be glowing with confidence.”

Our Yeovil apprentice Abbie, who joined us in May 2016 through Yeovil College, told me Being an apprentice at One Step has been an amazing opportunity for me, I’ve learnt so much and earning at the same time!

My colleague’s give me so much support and advice, which helps me gain knowledge and experience which is essential in developing throughout my role.

I would highly recommend this route to anyone who is looking to start out in a career.  I have gained so much confidence during this apprenticeship and I cannot thank One Step enough for this!”
